GoFundMe page for Zeus and Gray

I've started a GoFundMe page to raise money for 2 stray cats who desperately need medical care.  If you have even 5.00, please help them out.  This is the link to contribute:

http://www.gofundme.com/w5d9njw. (Link for Zeus and Gray)

Zeus is a beautiful tuxedo boy who needs to be neutered so he'll stop getting in fights.  We help the best we can with Neosporin and anti-biotics put in his food, but he's lost a lot of weight recently and his hair is falling out.  He also has gotten scratches and bites all over his head, and one got infected.  He has an open wound that I'm trying to keep clean but it's hard because he won't stay inside, he freaks out.

Gray is a tiny little boy with only 1 eye, just a few teeth, and he is skin and bones even though we feed him several times each day.  He just recently trusted us enough to touch him, so we couldn't tell how skinny he was.  He is super affectionate but still very fearful.

I'll add updates about them on my "Hep Cats" page and on Instagram.  Thank you for any help you can give, and ask any questions you have.

Beauty posts will come back eventually. Or not.

I'm well aware that I haven't written much about beauty products lately.  There are things to write about, of course, just like fashion. I just can't bring myself to write about them.  I finally posted under my "Hep Cats" page about the death of my much-loved little 18 year old cat, Scully.  I've had 2 cats for most of my adult life - Buddy and Scully.  Both were girls, both lived with me in Atlanta, then California, then in my hometown close to Pittsburgh.  Both were very attached to me as I was to them, and both lived to be 18 years old.  When Buddy died 2 1/2 years ago, I was devastated, but I still had little Scully.  When my Dad died sooner than expected in 2013, I felt lost, but I still had my Scully.  And now Scully has died and I honestly feel that I have no one.  It's a long story and not one that I'll write here. You can read a little more about it on my cat page or my Instagram.  I can't talk about it anymore now or the tears will never stop.  Another reason that beauty just isn't at the top of my priority list right now.

First look at MAC's Wash and Dry collection

I haven't been buying many beauty products lately, although I'm LOVING Hollywood Cerise lipstick from the MAC x Phillip Treacy collaboration. Such a gorgeous shade of pink!

But since MAC put their big summer collection out, I had to buy some from that.  I just got them yesterday and I've been too sick to feel like doing my make up.  My long-time fur baby companion passed suddenly this weekend and probably as a result of that stress, I got a cold, so I'm looking at my goodies but not up to applying them.  (There will be a post coming soon in the "Hep Cats" section about the cause of my sweet girl's paralysis and resulting death and some information about the signs so any of you cat parents can be aware of it.)

But without further ado, here's a few pics of my MAC goodies....
